River Exe Cafe
Sun 12:00 pm–9:00 pm
A unique experience, which I may repeat. Food was well cooked and service was sharp. I did however find it very expensive.
We weren’t able to eat at the River Exe Cafe as storms were really bad in Saturday and we were unable to go out on the water taxi. I would just like to say the alternative plans put in place were excellent. Many thanks to Jane
Superb as always!! Look forward to seeing you next year !
End of season but you still expect to have same level of food and drinks at your choice as through out the season drinks were poor out table was very dimley lit food was ok at bedt would visit again but in summer afternoon
An extraordinary experience. Excellent food from an interesting menu, served by attentive, polite and efficient staff.
Such an experience. Fantastic food and wonderfully friendly staff. When I’m back in the area I will book again.
Great experience and a really nice to enjoy lunch!!
Lovely place, was very noisy though and almost impossible for my elderly guest to hear anything throughout meal
We had a lovely evening, food was great our only criticism is because of the nature of being picked up and dropped back all in 2 hrs we felt we were rushed with eating , no sooner had we finished our starter the mains were out and then asked what we would like for pudding and coffee at the same time ,3 times we asked if we could wait a little to let main course go down .
Beautiful place, good atmosphere and amazing food. Thankyou!
Lovely meal, service and amazing setting as always. Can't wait to book next year.
Really great experience. Fun water taxi voyage, amazing restaurant, superb staff and delicious food. Good menu with lots of choice. Highly recommend and cannot wait to return next Spring.
You just have to try this venue to appreciate something unique and fabulous
I made the booking as a surprise for my wife's birthday. We both enjoyed the special venue and the food was excellent. I was good to know that the produce was locally sourced. The team were wonderful and "Joseph" was exceptional. Good luck for the future.
Just the right atmosphere and surroundings. Great fun to arrive ' en bateau '
Food & Staff were amazing, boat trip over was lovely. Couldn't fault anything at all. Can't wait to visit again next year!
It is an experience to eat here, with the boat ride etc. All personnel very friendly and helpful - queries re having sauces on the side were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We had 2 roasted cod - gorgeous and 1 paella - even me as a non-seafood eater was impressed! We did ask to be moved to another area as it does get very noisy in the restaurant which is the only problem for me - otherwise a really great experience.
Finally managed to book a table - 2 months in advance - been wanting to go for a couple of years but never been able to get a table when we wanted it. Was worried we had missed all the good weather but the day came and it stayed miraculously dry whilst we were going to the restaurant and all the time we were there and travelling back. Couldn’t believe our luck. Anyway we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were welcoming and the restaurant was set out carefully. The food was great and the staff were polite, friendly and efficient. Will definitely be going back next year!
We had a fantastic evening, although the weather wasn't great!!
Excellent service in a wonderful location. Thank you
We couldn’t make our evening on 22nd Sept but we’ve been before our friends who came from a long way had a fantastic time thank you 😊
My third visit to the restaurant yet again a fantastic meal. One of my friends described the food as the best she’d ever had!! Stunning food, great service and wonderful atmosphere. We will be back!
Lovely and dog friendly. River taxi staff nice and friendly
Great food and service as always boat ride is always a bonus
Outstanding food, great location, but over staffed and they were clearly at the end of their season (i.e. tired and distracted).
Absolutely fantastic, a great place with exemplary service with supremely fresh food. It really is a treat and will be looking forward to next year when you open again.
Very nice evening. Taxi worked well too. Food excellent.
We had such a lovely meal, the ambience was lovely, they also put a notice on the table say happy anniversary as it was our 30th wedding anniversary lovely touch. All in all lovely day, lovely meal, great ambience, great staff.
Fabulous place and service even with strong winds great food would definitely go again and would recommend it
This was our first visit. We made the booking 2-months earlier, so had no idea what the weather would be like. It turned out to be a sunny, breezy day. The taxi ride was efficient & enjoyable.
We were warmly greater on arrival at the cafe.
We shared a starter platter & main meal platter, both were delicious. We finished with an Eton mess.
The Sunday coffee was delicious.
The visit was thoroughly enjoyable. We can’t wait to return.
We had beautiful weather which really helped, not sure what it would had been like if it was raining. The food was very tasty and presented very nicely. Not sure if I would go back again, been there done type of feeling.
Unique and special - shame but understandable that on can't get last minute bookings
From the trip in the taxi to the welcome on the jetty, to the service, food and ambience it was a truly amazing experience. Excellent value - we had a beautiful day too.
It’s a wonderful experience from to moment you leave Exmouth Docks
Quality and size of mussels disappointing and being charged an additional fee for substitutiing cream for ice cream a little tight on a £50 plus meal.The overall booking experience was not easy and it would have been nice to have a personal contact that could have guided us through availability.The overall experience , albeit on a glorious Autumn day , was very enjoyabble
It was fabulous, from the water taxi to our time on the cafe. Food was lovely staff very friendly couldn’t fault anything and will definitely go again and recommend it.
I do love this place. Food is always good, a little bit pricey, but realistically it's worth every penny. I look forward to going back next year. I had three trips this year :-)
We managed to get a table for 5.30pm in September at the last minute. I felt we were spoilt by the warm low sun and beautiful autumn sunset. Definitely the best time to go at that time of year. The boat ride to shore was dreamy...
The portions were huge and the Neptune Sharing Platter was fresh with nicely flavoured pockets of seafood. The dill cockles, clams, prawns and aioli being our favourite... don’t be shy of asking for a doggy bag :)
Pink grapefruit gin was lovely and the atmosphere always calm, if not a bit rocky.
A perfect way to end the coastal walk.
2nd visit in a few day, always excellent service, food etc. The excitement starts from the moment you get on the Water Taxi to the moment you leave the Water Taxi at the end of a great evening. Love introducing the River Exe Cafe to friends.
If in the area you must go, a very special “Cafe” .
Looking forward to next summer when we can go again, it will be closing next week for the winter.
